Quoted from jwilson:

I-N-T-E-R-N-A-T-I-O-N-A-L-R-E-S-C-U-E

Very, very deep but about as wide as a wormhole.

#152 1 year ago

I’d probably play it if Terry bought it too

#153 1 year ago

You can erase the *probably* from that statement.

So is that a yay or a nay?

It's a *yay* if we can sort out the particulars. Stay tuned.

Oh hey guys, do you want to drive four hours to play thunderbirds? Nah

#160 1 year ago

it was next to krull when it was here, and you wouldnt come down for that either, but i drive up just to have a torpedo burrito with you, this relationship is so one sided

Torpedo burrito is so good, and worth the drive! I think you came out a winner!

I think you are obligated to bring it back to where it rightfully belongs at Pinball Life. You can sell some machines on the route to pay for travel and expenses.

Quoted from vicjw66:

No it has a very repetitive rule set and very repetitive and glitchy sounds and dots. It is hard to play in the sense that it is so painfully bad it is hard to play without wanting to quit playing. Gameplay is in fact easy. Just lock a ball. If you then later drain, that locked ball releases back into play. Think of it like Sonic the Hedgehog. As long as you have a ring, you won’t die if you get hit. The only real thing to do is spell International Rescue, which requires you to shoot the ramp to nowhere 19 times. The ramp shot is one of the least satisfying shots in all of pinball. Nothing special happens once you achieve this goal.

This sums it up. There’s zero depth to the rules.
It’s as shallow as it gets.

It does look like we're moving into sale pending. Should be finalized tomorrow.

Possibly the most active for sale thread!

#174 1 year ago

I always follow these TB sales threads. Primarily because I live in Hong Kong, just across the border from Shenzhen where the game is manufactured. TB for sale threads often get caustic (TB’s history strikes an emotional nerve with many Pinsiders). Fortunately, this one has been fairly civil. I hope the sale goes through.

Definitely the most active one I have ever started.

There is a Baywatch thread that would strongly disagree.

Whenever I read the word immaculate now, my brain translates it as imamaculate

#178 1 year ago

That was a classic thread!
